Aries Full Moon ~ Lunar Eclipse ~ Sept. 2015

supermoon3
This upcoming Full, Harvest, Blood, Super Moon (are you still with me? 😉 ) has been causing quite a stir in both the astrological community and some religious groups. It is the final of a quad (or tetrad, as it’s been called) of SuperMoons we’ve been having that kicked off on April 15, 2014. Some see it as a great push forward in the Collective Shift in Consciousness that has been occurring over the past 4 years….
While others in Judeo-Christian sects see it as a harbinger of Doom, yes that was a capital D. Watch out now….

I see it as a wonderful opportunity to use the mighty Aries energy to rocket us forward to wonderful new endeavors! Using ritual is a way to guide our intentions so that our rocket doesn’t end up sputtering down into the ocean… Forward momentum is great, but when it’s undirected it can turn tragic. This is where we need to take that extra step and create a channel for this powerful energy to flow through in a positive direction! Before we get to ritual ideas, let’s learn more about this specific moon…

Event Chart:

The full moon at 4 degrees Aries on Sunday September 27th is also a total lunar eclipse…
“An eclipse is a far more potent lunation. Look to the house the eclipse falls in your natal chart. The affairs of that house will be activated. Does the eclipse fall on a planet in your natal chart? That planet will also be activated. The sign of the eclipse plays a role in the likely events that the eclipse will trigger.
Many people tend to fear eclipses, simply because they often bring about a crisis of sorts that leads to a significant event or change. However, this event or change can be very positive.
Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances. However, we are usually the ones to precipitate or to attract changes because our “inner guides” know that we need it. Human beings are progressive by nature, and although we might stay in situations that are making us miserable for longer than we should, deep down inside we know that change is necessary for growth.”

What is a Super Moon?

“A Supermoon is a full Moon or a new Moon at its closest point to Earth; also called perigee. A Supermoon looks around 12 to 14% bigger than its counterpart, the Micromoon. A Supermoon can be full or new.”

What is a Blood Moon?

“Most of us in astronomy had not heard the term Blood Moon to describe a lunar tetrad until a few years ago, but now the term has gained widespread use in the media. The origin of the term is religious, at least according to Christian pastor John Hagee, who wrote a 2013 book about Blood Moons. We at EarthSky don’t have any special knowledge about the Blood Moons of Biblical prophesy. But, since they’re moons and since people are asking us, we wanted to provide some info. Follow the links below to learn more about Blood Moons.”
When the Moon is in Aries
We’re motivated by a strong desire to start fresh. A gut instinct to start something new is with us now, as well as the gumption to do so. Our pioneering impulses are strong, and we feel energetic, spontaneous, and enthusiastic. We may also be tactless and impulsive now. Excess energy is best channeled into physical activity.
The Moon in Aries generally favors the following activities: Quick actions that yield immediate results. Undertakings that involve the self and the personality. (Staying power may be lacking). Self-assertion, taking on challenges, beginning short-term projects.

Essential Oils & Herbs for Aries:
Peppermint essential oil or leaf ~ helps with headaches often brought on by Aries energy by reducing over-assertiveness.
Cinnamon essential oil or powder ~ helps sustain energy levels in the body, prevents “burnout” and fatigue.
Rose Otto essential oil or Rose Petals ~ reduces stress & tension and stimulates the energy of love, both for the self and others.
Please be very careful with essential oils, they are very potent substances and should never be applied to the skin undiluted, nor ingested. For this blend of oils (peppermint and cinnamon can irritate the skin),  use a diffuser to create an intoxicating aromatherapy experience or brew the leaves, bark & petals for a magickal full-moon tea! As you sip (or smell) , focus on setting a clear path of intention towards whatever positive, new endeavors you want in your life. Remember you can be very specific OR you can ask the Universe to bring you to the path that will serve the most good.

To help you craft your ritual, here’s a great article of what to do/not do during this powerful energy: http://www.newworldastrology.com/AriesFullMoon.html

If you are either unable to procure these items, or wish to use the power of intention alone, this is a fantastic visualization ritual via Mooncircles:
The special thing about ritual is that we are connecting the power that is with-IN us to the power with-OUT; it is in this place where we can manifest.
As the Buddha said:
We are what we think…
All that we are,
arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts
we make our world.
